Everyone thinks her kid is the best – the smartest, the cutest, the most talented, etc. Well, obviously, everyone’s kid is not the best – that’s not even logical. Most kids are average (hence the word average), and there’s nothing wrong with that. If everyone were exceptional, exceptional would become average, and that would throw everything out of whack. So, most children are average, despite what their parents may believe, and a select few are exceptional.
Of course, my son is one of those exceptional few, as I will demonstrate by sharing his most recent artistic masterpiece.
